Fact: The Phantom of the Opera begin as a book in 1909 written by Gaston Leroux; original title "Le Fantome De L'Opera". Forgive me, French speakers; The Phantom of the Opera. It's translated to English in 1911, also another fact. It was adapted for the stage as a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1986, also a fact. It is definitely a fact that it's one of the most beloved musicals of all time. Fact also is that it resides now in Las Vegas for all of us to see, in a ninety-minute redacted version, updated and they have built an entire theatre's special effects all around it; definitely worth checking out. It's also a fact that it is one of the absolute, most adapted pieces of literature or theatre, it all depends on how you want to look at it. Began with the book, the book begot radio place, begot movie, after movie, after movie, probably one of the most famous movies was the Lon Chaney version, one of the universal monsters Phantom of the Opera; very recognizable. It was also adapted into, just about adaption upon adaptations to the Chipmunks, the Phantom of the Rock Opera to the Phantom of the Megaplex by Disney. The theme of a Phantom living and controlling at a entertainment or a theatrical venue is a theme that just persist. The movies, there's been internationally somewhere on the, somewhere on the head of two dozen adaptations of the movie and the one that you maybe familiar with is the 2004 adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's adaptation of Gaston Leroux's original book. So let's follow that again. Gaston wrote the book, Lloyd Webber wrote the play, Joe Schumacher made the play or made the movie of the play of the book. You're still with me? Excellent! It's also a fact that the Phantom of the Opera's name is Erik; it's actually a little known fact in there; Christine the character of the love interest of the Phantom and Raoul of her love interest which sort of creates an interesting little menage, to keep it the French term. It's also a fact that I am confident that you will enjoy it. It's also a fact that it is one of my favorite shows. Read the book, see the stage show, see the Ken hill version, yet another musical you maybe unfamiliar with. Definitely go out there and experiment, even Robert Englund, Freddie Kruger played the Phantom of the Opera in the movie adaptation in 1989, I believe. I am deviate, you'll find out. I'm Christopher Rokosz, I hope this has been informative and it's a fact that I'll see you later.
